You got me!
If that is the biggest mistake I make today, I will count myself fortunate!

Interesting that they develop Black and Orange markings over a certain age - have to keep an eye out for that. I've caught them on the fly whilst fishing emergers during a hatch on the Assiniboine . Curious if anyone has a technique for targeting them. Thanks for the link very interesting!

Interesting to know that they live for so long. These have got to be some of the most mysterious fish in MB to catch. I find fly fishing the only way to target them, even then I find it difficult to catch. I found the way to catch them was to use tiny flies and being super stealthy.

They don't seem to feed like other suckers that can be caught on worms. What kind of bait can you even use to catch them?
